Teammate shares which defender gives Steph Curry the most trouble
Steph Curry is one of the toughest players in the NBA to defend, and one can argue that sometimes he’s un-guardable. But one player may give the Golden State Warriors guard more trouble than anyone else.

Draymond Green believes that Dillon Brooks gives Curry a harder time than anyone else in the league.
